Volunteer Service Trips

Projects Abroad volunteer on a service trip abroad in Argentina does community work.

On a volunteer service trip with Projects Abroad, you can choose from worthwhile projects in various fields and do meaningful service work while exploring a developing country. Projects Abroad currently operates programs in more than 25 destinations throughout the world, such as Cambodia, South Africa, Peru, Ghana, and Costa Rica, as well as many others. Each of these destinations possesses its own unique cultural traditions and customs that many of our volunteers find fascinating and exciting. No matter your choice of destination or project, you will have an important role to play in the local community and your efforts will be greatly appreciated.

Flexible Service Trips Abroad

Our volunteer service trips offer a plethora of diverse programs. Since Projects Abroad does not have set start and end dates, the time and duration of your project is entirely flexible. It does not matter if you are interested in Teaching, Medicine, Conservation or working with children, we can find the project that suits your exact goals and interests. Many of our volunteers are people who have decided to take a gap year, career break, or volunteer vacation, but some are those who have decided they needed a change of pace.

Whether you would like to volunteer over your winter break or during the summer or spring, we offer programs that are as short as one week. Several of our short-term projects are group trips designed specifically for high school students, volunteers over 50, and volunteers of all ages looking to participate in a service trip over winter break. So whether you have twelve weeks or two weeks available for a service trip, we have a project for you where you can make an impact on sustainable development and expand your horizons by being an international volunteer with Projects Abroad.

Beyond your Service Trip

Projects Abroad volunteers teach a pre-school class in Cambodia during their service trip abroad.

Each service trip has so much to offer you outside of your project work. Projects Abroad volunteers are encouraged to explore neighbouring countries and immerse themselves in local cultures. During your leisure time, you can learn about the different foods, religions, and histories in whatever destination you choose.

To help you become fully immersed in the local culture, you will be placed with a host family wherever possible. This way you have the opportunity to ask questions and experience a new culture in the most authentic way possible, as part of a family. With each country and culture being so diverse and unique, volunteers experience things with their host families they would not have been able to see if they had travelled as tourists. If you would like to discover a new country while making a difference, a service trip with Projects Abroad is perfect for you!
